    Yeah it’s really nice to be able to wear the B-3 and B-2 together again, and even better to have the A-10 gloves to go with them (they’re in the pocket). Yeah Smithy, I realised the ‘tache had gone beyond what I originally envisaged, so I cut it back a bit. Much happier with it now, although it’s a constant process of development and adjustment.

    Whoa!....... That looks very cold.
    I’m thinking B-3 or Irvin weather but the B-10 looks good . I’m guessing you had something heavy on underneath.

    Looks cold enough for your B-3, but that just goes to show the versatility of an A2 jacket.

    Not cold, -3C ( 28F) but very snowy.
    Yes, under the jacket I has sweater.
    The short jacket was chosen because we play with my daughter over the snow on a sled, it is more convenient.
    I usually wear another jackets in our climate in winter season and these jackets are much longer than flight jackets :)

    I've probably become acclimatised to coldish temps living here but I've been really stunned this winter by how much I can still wear an A-2. So long as there is not too much wind and I've got on thermals, a thin woollen jumper and this cheap arse C-2 copy with scarf I'm good down to around -5 or -6 degrees. Sure I wouldn't want to stand around all day doing nothing in that but if I'm moving I'm OK. The A-2 is a versatile jacket just so long as you don't buy it so tight you can only wear a T-shirt in it!

    It’s why I have been wearing my Kelso arco so much lately.
